Pressler & Pressler sent letters prior to getting me to appear in court. I never replyed. Then I get a letter to appear in court form the county court house. So i went. The court officer asked me to step outside the courtroom. After i gave him my name, he gave me papers and said I have to fill them out! I looked at them to see what it said, and tould him that I do have rights and don't want to fill the papers out. He said you do but, if you don't fill them out, it would considered contempt of court and I might get arrested. I didn't want to fill the paperwork because it asked for bank info too. So I tould the officer that I'm on unemployment, that's my only income. He said they can't touch your unemployment funds. I reluctantly gave up my financial info. At the bottom i stated that I'm on unemployment. Pressler & Pressler took the money anyway!!!!! Here's the rinkle, I only had approx. $350 in the account. The bank hit me off for $100 levy fee and P&P stole the rest. I did research on these bumbs and they have bad press all over the net. I looked at a lot of complaints And the least amount in the others account was $4,300. They only owed about $1,200, P&P took out more than what was owed, and the people are still trying to get their money back!! So watch out, you can't trust them, only respond to them by registered mail, don't do any thing by fax like i did being a nice guy. The owners have many years in the business, and push things to the edge. Seek council first. Then get in contact with them. You need to know your rights!!! Good Luck!

This doesn't sound right...

AUTHOR: Callie - (United States of America)

There's not enough information to go by in your description, so I have to ask: was this the actual court date or a Motion to Enforce Litigant's Rights hearing? Did you file an answer after receiving the complaint from the court? If you did, then you would be able to come to the court and protest the case.



The only instances that they are entitled to your financial information at the hearing are if they 1) asked for it in the beginning and you refused to provide it, resulting in a Motion to Strike Answer for Refusal to Answer Interrogatories, or 2) they already had a judgment against you, and filed a Motion to Enforce Litigant's Rights to get that information at the motion hearing. The first would result in your answer being striken, judgment being entered, and they could then collect. The second would result in them just being able to collect.



In either case, once exempt funds were seized, you should have gone as quickly as possible to the court. You could have objected to the bank levy, and if you had at least three months worth of past to current bank statements on hand, the clerks there could have set you up for an emergent hearing to release the funds. It wouldn't stop P&P from trying to collect, but it would have gotten your unemployment back. There is also a monetary amount exemption, as in funds less than a certain amount can be exempt so as to prevent financial hardship. That amount can vary, so you need to check with the nearest court to see what their rules are on the matter.



In short, for anyone reading this in the future, if you are unsure of your options or believe that the moneys taken are exempt, please contact your local court. The clerks there can give you detailed, understandable accounts of what has happened, why, and what can be done for you. They can't give advice, but if you know what you want to do, they can tell you what forms to file, and what they need to get the ball rolling. They can also set you up for hearings in front of the judge, so if you missed your chance to plead your case the first time, you still have options. If you can't afford an attorney, courts have law libraries and forms for you to do it yourself. They can also provide the numbers for local legal aid services and lawyer referral services.



They're there to help everyone, not just attorneys.
